Whimsy Guest DT

I hope everyone is having a lovely week!  I am very excited because I have been given the opportunity to be a guest designer for the fabulous Whimsy Stamps!  I am a big fan of Whimsy Stamps products!!!  The theme this week is 'BINGO' and I have used one of the sweet images designed by Lia Stampz called "Phanny".  I had a hard time choosing which image to use because I just love all the artists images at Whimsy...Check them out HERE.....they are superb to create with!  I created a Shaped Birthday card with my **NEW** Whimsy Image....and NEW Grand SB's and Magnolia Dies that I got for Mother's Day--Thanks Kids!!!!
Please join us over at Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Challenges for our BINGO challenge---I used the row~~~White, Charm, Pink!!!
Phanny was colored with Copics--Greys~~C3, 1, 00, W3, 1, YR 24, 21, B00....outfit and toenails--RV 23, 21, 00~~finished with diamond glaze, stickles, pearls and Gelly roll white pens
SB deckled rectangle to cut out image and then inked with TH spun sugar and walnut stain.  The SB curved rectangle layer under the image was embossed with folder from Sizzix Birthday Set #2 then inked also!!  Used my New Grand Nesties for the base.  Finished with white swiss-dot ribbon, Magnolia paper heart flower lace (New product), Pearls, MS butterflies, heart charm and sentiment is a Endless Creations stamp.  
Shows glazed shine on cheeks, eyes, and cake.  The stickles sparkle on cake, bows and toenails :)
 This view shows all the dimensional layers.
